To learn more about the concept of epigenetic age and Phenoage check out the FoundMyFitess topic article on epigenetic aging clocks. Also, stay tuned for the podcast episode Dr. Steve Horvath, who first discovered aging clocks, going live soon!

Biological age was a better predictor of COVID-19 severity than chronological age. "Phenoage" combines epigenetic age with measures of inflammation, metabolic, and immune function.

This may be an artifact of the trial design. One single dose of 200,000 rather than multiple successive doses of 50,000. Conflicts with other evidence. Other trials have shown that a single monthly dose cannot prevent respiratory infections but weekly & daily doses can.

This was an analysis of 49 separate randomized controlled trials. People that were admitted to the ICU were either administered omega-3 or placebo. This is not an association. Causation was established.

These were randomized-controlled trials. People ended up in the ICU and were either given omega-3 or placebo.

This is a reminder that seems very relevant as the ICUs are filling up around the US.

No. Dr. Fahey does not think it is necessary.

Enough is enough. It’s time for vitamin D, which is low risk, to be strongly considered as a crucial factor in COVID-19. “Vitamin D reduces COVID-19; infection; severity; ICU admission and mortality...”

The best thing fans of his ideas should do is insist that he submit the ideas through peer-review rather than the popular press and continue doing so until he’s able to persuade more accomplished scientists whose work he is, for better or worse... taking a shot at. (2/2)

Respectfully, I don’t know that these debates are a service to an uninformed audience, some of which [his fans] are suffering from a hysterical overload of Dunning-Kruger in their permissiveness of the broad liberties they grant him in the presentations of his ideas. (1/2)

Is sulforaphane going to be the thing that ruins your thyroid? To say I'm "skeptical" on the basis of current evidence, might be a huge understatement. Here's what who has worked with the compound for nearly three decades had to say...

Using wise reasoning helps foster positive feelings amid interpersonal conflict. But what is wise reasoning? Easier said than done, it involves recognizing where one’s knowledge is lacking, and acknowledging multiple possible conclusions to a situation.

By the way, my podcast FoundMyFitness is dedicated to helping listeners understand the implications of research just like this.

As Austen, you have to keep in mind that even measuring what aging is is actually a frontier. What was showed in this study is the reversal of interesting markers. I LOVE this kind of research and am not shy about tweeting it, but you have to grasp the context beneath the press.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy led to a 38% increase in telomere length in blood cells and 37% fewer senescent immune cells in healthy older adults. Here is the press release...

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment for 3 months was able to reverse some biomarkers of aging in healthy older adults. The hyperbaric oxygen treatment increased telomere length in blood cells and decreased the number of senescent immune cells.

Higher plasma levels of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA was associated with earlier sleep timing and longer weekend sleep duration in adolescents. This is in line with a randomized controlled trial that found DHA improved sleep quality in children.

Total sugar intake is associated with a higher overall cancer risk independent of body fat. The associations were more pronounced for sucrose, non–fruit-derived sugars, and added and natural sugars present in sugary drinks.

High sugar diet leads to a thinning of the gut mucus protective layer. Refined sugar may cause poor gut health and exacerbate gut problems by increasing bacteria in the gut that breakdown the mucus layer that protects the lining of the large intestine.
